Embracing & Extending the Teachings of Our Lord
We see our church not simply as a house of worship with walls, a roof and open doors. Rather, we believe that the church is actually the members and believers that come together to practice God’s word, celebrate His love, and extend His gifts and save souls.
The Mission of the Church
Through the Bible, service, worship, and missions, we bring God closer to our hearts and closer to the hearts of those around us. From extraordinary sermons to attending our faith-based community initiatives, classes or events — everything we do is based off of our commitment to spread the teachings of our Lord.
Meet Our Pastors!
Pastor Juan & Carmen Bustamante
Raised in the North Side of Houston, Texas Pastor Juan had a rough start. Pastor Juan & Carmen started their spiritual journey at Lake Wood Church in 1998. As they were learning what the love of Jesus Christ and God would do in their lives they began to have a passion for ministering. Pastor Juan and Carmen, along with 3 couples, would go door to door to preach about the Gospel. Shortly after, Pastor Juan received a scripture from God to become a Pastor, " And the Lord said to him: “I have heard your prayer and your supplication that you have made before Me; I have consecrated this house which you have built to put My name there forever, and My eyes and My heart will be there perpetually" 1 Kings 9:3. With prayer and after confirmation from God Pastor Juan and Carmen were ready to do God's will. They decided to start their own church and named it City On A Hill Church, the name came from a trip back from the hill country Kerrville, Texas. They saw a house on top of a hill and noticed that everyone could see this house, which is where the inspiration came from. Then the Lord spoke to them that name "City On A Hill" and said "You shall be that city on a hill in Houston, Texas. The Salt, Light, and Love to my people." On July 2011 they started services at Azteca Ballroom for 4 months. Shortly after, they found a listing of a building in the North Side on Cochran St where we are currently located at.
